Buckland Named As Gardeners' World Host

by | 13 August 2008

Toby Buckland has been named as the new host of the BBC's Gardeners' World.

Buckland will take over from Monty Don, who was forced to step down from the show after suffering a stroke in May.

Don has since recovered but has vowed to take thinks easier from now on, meaning he will not be returning to the programme he has fronted for eight years.

Buckland, who previously hosted Home Front In The Garden, said taking over as the show's main presenter was a "complete thrill and honour".

"Monty and the team have done some wonderful things there in recent years, and I look forward to working with them and continuing that, but obviously I'm keen to make my own mark there too," Buckland said.

Gardeners' World has been shown on the BBC for over 40 years and previous hosts include Alan Titchmarsh, Geoff Hamilton and Percy Thrower.
